Which power supply should i get: Raidmax RX-500AF or Corsair CX 500?

I'm building a new pc , with the following specs

Core i5 3470
Corsair vengence 8gb
1 tb WD Cavier blue HDD
Either Gtx 650 or Ati 7770

Anyway should i get the RAIDMAX RX-500AF or Corsair Cx 500 , in my country the CX 500 is about 50$ more than the Raidmax. Is the Raidmax enough?

    Raidmax has a poor reputation for PSU's, def go with Corsair.
    Plz review this link - shows Raidmax as tier 5 brand (the worst)

    "Tier 5 - Other than the units listed above for any of these brands, NOT RECOMMENDED. Replace ASAP if you have one."
  3. Any other PSU that you can buy in your country ?

    If no definetly the CX 500W. PSU is a crucial factor when building a system. IT can fry all of your components :/

    Good Luck !
  4. Never buy a Raidmax psu.
  5. So I better pay 50$ extra and get the CX 500 just to be sure right?
  6. Yes. That raidmax will fail at some point and possibly damage something along the way.
  7. Yes pay the 50$ extra. They will help you not to pay 500$ for a new system :)
